Lenovo ideapad 520s - dual monitor issue/question

2020-06-29, 15:48 PM

Hi

 

I have a lenovo 520S ideapad running Windows 10. How do I attach 2 external  monitors?  The HDMI port works fine but the USB-C port does not drive the second monitor with e USB-C to HDMI cable?

 

Any advice most welcome

Hi,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo forum community!

 

so, when you look up the graphics card of your device, this is the table that show what your uit is capable of.

DisplayPort
HDMI
DVI
VGA
Built-in display
DisplayPort
HDMI
DVI
VGA
Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi)

first port is buildin display, second one can be any of the ones displayed, while the 3rd one will need to be via WiDi. That is the reason why you cannot get it to work.
